About The Owner
Make Your Dog Happy is owned and operated by myself, Paula J. Mears, ABCDT, PFCDT. I am life long resident of Manchester, NH. My true love for dogs started when I was seventeen and got my first dog. At first, like most new dog owners, I made many mistakes. Then my sister got me a book on dog training, and I got hooked. My late sister-in-law, a dog groomer, inspired me to become a dog trainer, while my brother, and my veterinarian, encouraged me. Today I am double certified dog trainer who graduated from Animal Behavior College and Penn Foster Schools. My education has expanded my knowledge in many fields of training, such as fly ball, agility, and search and rescue. I love dogs, and I love what I do!
Identifying behavior issues and resolving them are what I find most fascinating. I've worked successfully with many behavior issues, and have even resolved most behavior issues in 1 day! I believe my studies on dog psychology and dog behavior complement my goal of becoming a certified behavior consultant.
